The Virtual T'NT curriculum is created for the remote/virtual learner, digital versions of workbook exercises, with shortened lessons to accommodate shortened schedules.
T’NT is a curriculum designed by a center for independent living, in which employees with disabilities are the majority. The curriculum aims to prepare young adults (ages 16-22) with high incidence disabilities for employment, independent living, and post-secondary education. The curriculum actively engages students in a variety of topics including: job training, soft skill development, mock interviews, housing, insurance, financial literacy, and community resources.
The T’NT program consists of 16 lessons designed to be taught during a 45 to 50 minute instructional period. Each lesson engages students in active, cross curricular learning through the use of a variety of instructional methods including multimedia presentations, online inventories, hands-on activities, class discussions, mock interviews, and small group work.
One of the most successful features of the T’NT program is its ability to expand a student’s horizons, expectations, and community connections by inviting local businesses and community members into the classroom to share their personal and professional knowledge with the students.
During the 2019/2020 school year, the following outcomes were reported:
- 85% of students increased their knowledge of independent living options;
- 90% of students participated in mock interviews;
- 87% of students increased their knowledge of post-secondary education and training opportunities;
- 85% of students indicated a desire for future employment either during or post-high school.
